PPM means "parts per million." This is the unit that scientists use to measure the concentration of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. For people who are working to stop the rise of atmospheric CO2 levels and get them falling back to safe levels below 350 ppm, PPM can have a second meaning. As Bill McKibben of 350.org puts it, PPM is the "People Powered Movement" that is working to create a prosperous, low-carbon economy.
At CO2Now.org, the small PPM widgets make it possible to display the latest data for atmospheric CO2 from any web page. The continuous year-over-year rise of CO2 levels is a constant reminder that more needs to be done.
Below, widget code is available in fives sizes: 35, 40, 45, 50 and 55 pixels wide. Each size is on display above.

Advancing the CO2 Widget Program
Since 2008, CO2Now.org has provided and maintained a series of 'atmospheic CO2' widgets that are ready-to-use and easy to add to any website. The widgets are 100% free. They are hosted at a highly-secure data center that is powered directly by solar panels. And, CO2Now.org pays the bill for the bandwidth costs . . . even for CO2 widgets used on business and government websites.
Atmospheric CO2 data is objective information and important enough to show to anyone with an interest in the well-being of the planet. We are asking people and organizations to spread the word about these widgets. (You may know one or two people you could talk to about using a widget to put CO2 information on public display.)
We are also inviting financial contributions to help sustain and enhance this growing CO2 widget initiative. Of course, contributions are voluntary. They also make a real difference. Whether or not you (or your organization) use a widget, support can be given at the CO2Now financial contributions page. And, whether or not you make a financial contribution, we hope you are able to use a widget.
